Brazil's Bolsonaro says bill to allow mining on native reserves ready

BRASILIA, Dec 19 (Reuters) - Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro said on Thursday that a bill authorizing mining on protected indigenous reserves was ready and only needed to be sent to Congress for consideration.

Bolsonaro told supporters that indigenous people should also be allowed to commercially farm on their land and that native populations should be involved in a drive to expand the country’s beef production. (Reporting by Pedro Fonseca and Jake Spring; Editing by Edmund Blair)
